Dream Mandé Bamanan Djourou

Dream Mandé Bamanan Djourou is a music show based on covers of traditional Bambara songs and adaptations of French songs (Jacques Brel, Léo Ferré). Five musicians and six female singers led by Rokia Traoré are taking part in the show, made of vocal and instrumental arrangements of traditional melodies, resulting in an artistic body of work which, in the end, deviates significantly from traditional music and offers outstanding harmonies and rhythms.
